SermonThe King At The Door
       Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear My voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20 The first and true application of these words is an application to the Christian Church; but, with a fine sense of appropriateness, the Christian consciousness has taken the principle in
SermonThe King's Thought of Man
       Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4 The story of the temptation of our Lord appeals to men irresistibly by reason of its essential naturalness. In all its central values it is true to our common human experience. As we read it, far removed as we feel ourselves to be from th
SermonThe Kingdom 1: The King
       He hath on His garment and on His thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Revelation 19:16 This is a view of Christ in His glory, a poetic and prophetic description of a glory upon which the eye of man has not yet rested in actual history. John, as he wrote an account of the vision granted to him, was careful in the center
The Kingdom 2: Of Such is the Kingdom
       Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the Kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3 Our theme tonight is that of the character necessary for entrance to the Kingdom. The words of my text were not addressed to the promiscuous multitude. I do not mean by that statement to infer that they have no application for such
The Kingdom 3: The Oath of Allegiance
       Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the Kingdom of God. Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after Me, cannot be My disciple. Luke 14:15, 27 Our theme tonight is that of the demand which the King makes in respect of His own enterprises upon those who enter the Kingdom. That is the real signification of His words, spoken in answer
The Kingdom 4: Thy Kingdom
       Thy Kingdom .... Matthew 6:10 Our theme this evening is that of the Kingdom over which the King reigns. The phrase I have read as text is taken, apparently, almost ruthlessly from its setting. These words are selected from the Lord's prayer. My theme this evening is not the prayer, but rather the Kingdom for the coming of which our Lord taught
The Kingdom 5: Traitors
       Men shall be... traitors... from these also turn away. 2 Timothy 3:2, 4, 5 We have in this letter in all probability, the last words of the great apostle. It is very largely a personal letter. One illustration of that will be discovered in the fact that there are twenty-three proper names found in its four brief chapters. It is the letter of
SermonThe Kingdom Shall Be The Lord's
      "And saviors shall come up on Mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau, and the Kingdom shall be the Lord's" (Obadiah 21). The prophecy of Obadiah is admittedly a strange page in the Old Testament. One could almost imagine it being said that surely there is no message in it for us, and for our times. Nevertheless it is true that Isadore said of t
SermonThe Lack of the Spirit
       Did ye receive the Holy Ghost when ye believed? Acts 19:2 "Did ye receive the Holy Ghost when ye believed?" not, "Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?" There is no warrant for the introduction of that word "since" into the Authorized Version. The tense is the same in both the verbs. "The Holy Ghost received ye when ye believed?"
SermonThe Limitations Of Liberty
       All things are lawful for me; but not all things are expedient. All things are lawful for me; but I will not be brought under the power of any. 1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful; but not all things are expedient. All things are lawful; but not all things edify. 1 Corinthians 10:23 The Apostle Paul was preeminently the apologist o
DevotionalThe Living Church Reveals the Living Person
      "...the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth" (1 Tim. 3:15). The Church of God apart from the Person of Christ is a useless structure. However ornate it may be in its organization, however perfect in all its arrangements, however rich and increased with goods, if the Church is not revealing the Person, lifting Him to the
SermonThe Looking of Jesus
       And He entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and when He had looked round about upon all things, it being now eventide, He went out unto Bethany with the twelve. Mark 11:11 This was the final incident in a wonderful day, and it was as remarkably suggestive as anything that happened on that day. In the morning Jesus had ridden toward the ci
SermonThe Madness of Jesus
       And when His friends heard it, they went out to lay hold on Him: for they said, He is beside Himself. Mark 3:21 The first matters that arrest our attention are that this was said by the friends of Jesus, and that it was intended to be a friendly saying. These friends of Jesus meant exactly what we sometimes mean when we say of some person in
SermonThe Mind of Christ
       Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:5 The letter to the Philippians is pre-eminently the letter of Christian experience. It is most difficult to analyze, because it is so largely personal, and almost exclusively a love-letter, the letter of Paul the prisoner to his children in the faith. Among the most rema
SermonThe Name Jesus
       Thou shalt call His name Jesus; for it is He that shall save His people from their sins. Matthew 1:21 Even today the naming of a newborn child is an event full of interest. The principles of choice are varied in these complex and somewh at superficial days. Children are given names because the names have been borne by their fathers before the
SermonThe Nearness Of God 1: The Nearness Of God Unrecognized
       Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. Genesis 28:16 A preacher of a generation ago introduced a sermon on Jacob's dream by saying, "A long journey, a hard pillow, an uneasy conscience, and a heavy heart. These are the things that make men dream." If that be the natural explanation of
The Nearness Of God 2: The Nearness Of God Discovered
       Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. Genesis 28:16 Last Sunday evening I preached from this text, leaving my message unfinished. I return to it tonight that I may say some things which were then omitted. In order to have sequence of thought I must briefly summarize what already ha
SermonThe One Offering
       For by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Hebrews 10:14 The Biblical conception of religion is right relationship between God and man. The Biblical doctrine of man is, essentially, that he is the offspring of God, whose relation to God, therefore, is threefold: first, that he has the right of personal access to Go
SermonThe Opportunity Of Calamity
       Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:16 In these words we have a remarkable revelation of Christian privilege and responsibility in days of calamity. In the text are outstanding words which arrest our attention: first, the opening word, "Redeeming"; then the word almost immediately succeeding, "time"; and, finally, the wor
SermonThe Optimism of Faith
       Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the proving of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 The history of the world's progress is the history of the triumphs of faith. Faith, to all human seeming, does the most unwarranted things. It sings in prison. It fights while still in chains. It works without tools. You may put the men of faith into prison,
